there was a lack of trust between obama and netanyahu. and this is something that will transpire later but to me, e of the most important potential outcomes of this visit would be to restore or to build from the outset. >> rose: a relationship between netanyahu and obama. >> and obama, where they can trust each other. >> but that starts, i think, with him building the relationship of trust with the israeli public. you see, his approval ratings went down to 10. that is what they were on friday before they went there. and the irony is that they also went down to 10 in the arab world. because what the arabs wanted was him to fulfill his promise to solve the palestinian problem. when he didn't do that and didn't close guantanamo they lost faith in him. now, i think, us through this speech and through the actions that he has taken on this trip, he will restore or reintroduce himself to the israeli public. >> rose: he wants to reset the israeli-u.s. relationship. >> once he improves his standings amongst the israeli you be pick-- public, netanyahu will be more compliant, why? because the israeli public w
. president obama also visited the holocaust memorial joining president peres and prime minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry as well. and in nearby bethlehem, president obama toured the church of the nativity. the biblical birth place of jesus. he did that with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. the president then held one more scheduled meeting with benjamin netanyahu before taking that 35-minute flight to jordan. martin fletcher has the very latest on that 50-minute news conference that we all saw there. martin, let's start with the news conference. the president and king abdullah. they spent a great deal of time on what had been the dominant themes during the trip. iran, syria and the palestinian peace process. what struck you most from the news conference that we just saw? >> reporter: well, what struck me most, craig, in addition to the call for the desperately urgent need for a peace agreement, or the peace process between israel and the palestinians and the question of how to stop iran from developing a nuclear weapon. we've been hearing that for the las
'm not the only one who's suspicious of obama's committment to israel. so is the prime minister benjamin netanyahu. during the 2012 campaign, netanyahu all but endorsed obama's opponent-- what is your name? [cheers and applause] i know this. i know this. i know this. don't tell me. matz latke? bris schmaltzy? putz schmuckney? what, whatever. jim? >> prime minister netanyahu pretty much aligned himself with governor romney. >> prime minister benjamin netanyahu, who really threw his full support, it seemed at times behind mitt romney. >> you know they've known each other since the 1970s when they worked together in a consulting firm. >> you've been a personal friend of mine and a strong friend of the state of israel. >> stephen: that might make obama's trip a little awchward! [laughter] will obama's trip be a success? will he insult the palestinians by eating the israeli delicacy falafel or will he insult the israelis by eating the palestinan delicacy falafel? [laughter] here to discuss the chosen people is my chosen guest, please welcome israeli ambassador to the united states, michael oren. [cheer
to perceive a credible threat if that is military. with president obama and netanyahu standing together on the question of iran in a way they have not done before, iran if they are watching and calculation is smart. >> everybody talks about the jewish vote and how it will go republican and maybe it does with reagan and mcgovern against nixon, is this really a problem for obama at all that he has a problem with the jewish community electorally? >> even mcgovern won two-thirds of the jewish vote in defeat. the jewish vote has been among the most stable in american politics, between two-thirds and three-quarters for democrats since fdr and al smith in 1958 because americans vote to the left on domestic issues, they don't primarily vote on israel and why these things don't change very much. i don't think it has to do with the jewish vote at all, with obama's views about american national issues. >> what about the man in jail for 28 years, the longest in any country. not spying on us but arabs. it seems if the makes this statement apology, belief he shouldn't have done it, what do you think?
and benjamin netanyahu were much closer together are not. what obama said, he said we are not going to allow iran to have nuclear weapons. he said we are not going to allow them to have weapons in an attempt to contain them. they were much closer than they have been. a very key subject. a. lou: let's turn to something that i did not want to hear. that was america and president obama are ready to attack iran. i found that there could be all sorts of excuses and rationalizations and reasons that the president of israel said that. judy, this is too bellicose for my taste. >> i think that he says exactly what is on his mind. i think that a 90-year-old president who helped israel acquire its own nuclear weapons, they were reminding israel and the united states at the top agenda item for israel is making sure that iran does not process redline. i think the two men are not closer to coming to an agreement on what that definition is. lou: if you would like to respond, please. >> it is a tricky issue. the u.s. and israel have different capabilities. now, those capabilities, we don't know what is back
a whirlwind day with the president. chuck, thanks. one of the major items on the agenda for president obama and prime minister netanyahu is the war in syria now in its third year. it was a deadly day there. a bombing in the heart of damascus. our chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell also with us from jerusalem tonight with more on these late developments. andrea, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. on syria there is no daylight between the u.s. and israel on the threat next door. today that suicide bomber blew up a damascus mosque killing 42 people including a prominent sheikh who supports the assad regime. opposition leaders denied all responsibility. this is just another sign of vulnerability in a regime that has thousands of chemical weapons. today president obama warned assad and his forces that the world is watching. the president said they will be held accountable if they use chemical weapons or let them fall into the hands of terrorists. but in secret testimony this week, congressional committees were told some of these deadly weapons are, in effect, locked
're going to see coming out of the visit. clearly obama and netanyahu have found a way to work together on this turkish problem. i hope they can fine a way to work together on he palestine janish a way that will move that forward. that's not going to solve the regions' problems but going to make it easier for the united states and israel to deal with the problems. >> shepard: thank you. >> thank you. >> shepard: a little island causing big problems for the global economy, and now lawmakers in cyprus are racing against the clock to fix their own problems. the bunks are still closed. there's talk of government taking money from people's bank accounts. don't know where the russian mob is but they're the problem. any attempts to fix things seems to be making matters worse. we'll get a live report from cyprus. >>> a woman in georgia, as in atlanta, georgia, says a teenager tried to rob her, and when she said she had no money, he shot her baby dead. now police say they're about to make a very big announcement and we'll have that next. look what mommy is having. mommy's having a french fry. ye
far, obama and israeli president benjamin netanyahu have been doing their best to put personal disagreements behind them. >> we look now at where israel and the u.s. stand today and with this visit could possibly take those ties. >> this is it is more of a symbolic gesture and less about the specifics of a peace plan. barack obama's aimed to build back a little warm in relations with israel. >> we've spent more time together, working together than i have with any leader, and this speaks to the closeness of our two nations. [applause] >> the alliance between the united states and israel is considered sacrosanct and has a long tradition. it dates back to 1967, during the six-day war. israeli forces took control of the west bank and the gaza strip. washington's pro-israeli policy was born with president lyndon b. johnson starting to send money and arms to the jewish state. 11 years later, the leaders of first world enemies israel and egypt signed the camp david accords after two weeks of intense negotiations led by president jimmy carter. the palestinians never give up their desir
intelligence. i need to do this for my friend barack obama, and netanyahu could make the same case for the people criticizing him at home for apologizing to erdogan. >> you mentioned syria. when the president got to jordan, he and king abdullah held a joint press conference, news conference, and the the president announced there he is going to be asking congress for more money to go to jordan, to help them deal with all the refugees coming in from syria. why is that important for the obama administration? >> judy, when i said there were two of the three allies in the region, the third most important ally there for the united states is jordan, a tiny country, but punches above the weight. jordan security forces and intelligence forces are excellent. and i described in the earlier piece some of the role it's playing. but king abdullah's on somewhat shaky ground, the economy is bad, and part of the problem is the refugees are a huge pressure point as the king sort of eloquently said today. few of us saw the foreign minister this afternoon who said it's almost as if-- he said it's as i
obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united states. and romney delivered a speech in israel that echoed netanyahu's talking points at that time on iran. >> we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is our fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so. in the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded. we recognize israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for america to stand with you. >> benjamin netanyahu did everything he could to pretend that the romney position on iran was somehow tougher than the obama position on iran. the romney speech was pure pandering from start to finish, which means that it, of course, did not include the words "palestine" or "pal
. netanyahu made the apology in a phone call. president obama is reported to have encouraged the move during a visit to the region. >> these divisions are rose -- arose in the eu on friday on weather to on syrian rebels. britain and france remained isolated. germany's foreign minister said prior to the meeting that berlin fears that arms could fall into the wrong hands. most eu members favor tougher sanctions on the regime of president assad. >> on the line from dublin now, we have our correspondent. has there been any progress in the talks between these foreign ministers. >> getting agreement was going to be a tall order, but anybody looking for some move -- well, i'm afraid they will be disappointed. foreign ministers are going the wrong way, and really, the best they can say is that the talks were useful and that they will continue, but there is no disguising the fact that even after today's talks were very differences -- very serious differences of opinions. simply put, britain and france believe in dispatching arms to the rebels, and the rest of the european union -- the irish and germa
netanyahu has phenomenonny pologized for the death of troops. the reconciliation was brought on by president obama's trip to the middle east. our north american editor, who is traveling with the president, has sent us this report. >> at israel's holocaust memorial, president obama declared we must work for the light. but ermon than diplomacy the man was hoping to change the way america was seen in the world when we came into office. obama has shown a passionate respect for their country that is sweet music to israeli ears and many liked his push for peace. one newspaper declared "love has paid a royal visit." >> for our sons and daughters are not born to hate. they are taught to hate. so let us fill their young hearts with the same understanding and compassion that we hope others have for them. >> he mailed tribute to zionism at the grave of its modern founder. the new friendlier approach is already working and he's urging israeli prime minister netanyahu -- he's made a surprising apology to his turkish counterpart in 2009 obama's first big policy speech was in crier ro. -- cairo. >> and th
minister netanyahu -- he's made a surprising apology to his turkish counterpart in 2009 obama's first big policy speech was in crier ro. -- cairo. >> and this cycle of suspicion and discord mustened. >> tonight the president arrived in jordan knowing many in the arab world watched that speech and waited and wapetted. in this trendy tafoya in the jordanian capital those i talked tofelt let down, further -- to felt let down. >> i think he is exactly like all the american presidents that preceded him. his visit came again to reinforce the american position towards israel, that they were supporters of steal to the end. >> i didn't -- israel to the end. >> i didn't expect anything to come out of it that way. it's a shame that politics can make a great person not do great things. >> in jordan there are protests every friday. but obama's determination not to dictate feels weak to some. many argue that if many american presidents forced itself on the meevels, the region is now forcing itself upon president obama. the president has already disappointed people in the arab world. if he doesn't get p
in the day mr. obama had lunch with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and paid tribute to holocaust victims at a memorial in tel aviv. >>> san francisco police are looking for a man who attacked a teen girl and her mother on a bus. it happened last weekend on the 14 mission bus there. police say the man pushed his way through the crowded aisle, when the girl shoved him back and yelled at him, that led to a confrontation in which he punched her and started to strangle her, her mother tried to stop it but was punched before he got off the bus and while this was going on a second man stole the mother's purse. >>> livermore police hope a newly released photo will help them find a man who held up a bank yesterday. police say this man robbed a citibank branch there yesterday at 1:30 p.m. the man indicated he had a gun. he got away with cash. witnesses describe him as a white man between 25 and 30 years old. 5'10" with a heavy build. anyone with information is asked to call police. >>> police are now providing new information about a service dog stolen while its owner was sleeping on a bar
presents, and that the netanyahu government does not want you to see. president obama knows, he cannot be the only politician willing to take a risk for peace. he knows he needs an israeli partner for peace, and so he asked for one this way. without actually mentioning benjamin netanyahu's name. >> and let me say this as a politician. i can promise you this. political leaders will never take risks if the people do not push them to take some risks. you must create the change that you want to see. ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary things. >> joining me now, alex wagner, host of msnbc's "now" and a senior fellow at the brookings institution. alex, i thought the extraordinary thing about this speech, it's a combination of things. the president's words and then the audience's reaction which was the most important thing. the audience's reaction, i thought, was a unique opportunity for the israeli people to send their message to the world about what they believe and hope their future can be. >> and sort of life-affirming, wasn't it? at just seeing the way they reacted to the notion
approach the united states should be pursuing and what we should be paying atntion to, obama's claman a piece is the only path to true security. of course, objective of against iran syria benjamin netanyahu and the ceo of ge be international. a fox use digital politics editor. gentlemen,hank you for being with us. if i may, i want to start with you. benjamin nanyahu could not have been too pleased with whoever else happened. president obama was speaking rather aggressively to the oplef israel over the head of benjamin netanyahu. >> well, a lot of these visits are public diplomacy. i will say that based upon what the president haaaid over the past few days there is a hopeful be in this cynical me. i hope that the president has been seen as of late both the nsa intelligence rorts as follows until it -- israeli intelligence reports and has come to the conclusion that they are a serious threat. if you read between the lines the sounds as if he is given the green light to attack whenever they deem necessary. that is the hopeful. the cynical, says something else based upon the past four yea
. but contrary to the apparent and uncharacteristic chumminess with prime minister netanyahu yesterday, mr. obama and abbas displayed an understated- business like-tone in a brief press conference. the president denounced the morning's rocket attack and the group that rules in gaza. >> hamas cares more about enforcing its own rigid dogmas than allowing palestinians to live freely; and because too often it focuses on tearing israel down rather than building palestine up. >> warner: on the issue at hand, the president did say his administration was committed to give the moribund peace process another try, and he urged the palestinians to do the same. >> my argument is even though but it is israel's continued expansion of jewish settlements on the west bank that have been a stumbling block to revived peace negotiations. a halt to such construction is a palestinian pre-condition for re-starting talks. mr. obama had joined the call in 2009, but hasn't pushed since. today abbas seemed to reaffirm that insistence, though he didn't use the word condition. >> ( translated ): it is the duty of the israeli
this live. president obama right there live just about to leave israel. heading to jordan. he's at the airport in tel aviv. he just spent 20 minutes meeting with benjamin netanyahu. the president is about to leave israel. heading to jordan. we'll have all the details coming up. >>> let's go back over to sal as we get closer to 7:00. >> we are looking at the toll plaza. there is a little bit of a wave here pam and dave westbound. it's not bad. if you are driving in san jose, southbound 280 we have the two right lanes closed. now to bill. >>> we are looking at temperatures today. they will be warmer than yesterday. that is a good thing. we'll see temperatures in the 60s and low 70s. current numbers outside low 40s. it will be a nice looking 24 hours when i get back on mornings on 2 at 7:00 we will show you the five-day forecast and the next chance for rain. >>> coming up on mornings on 2 the big story we've been telling you about is a deadly hit and run accident on a san jose freeway. >>> developing news in marin county. a rock slide causing big problems for drivers heading to t
that. is real concern that is the issue prime minister netanyahu and president obama have to agree. uma: on issue of syria, chemical weapons, what are the thoughts at this moment? is there viable evidence to say those weapons have actually been used? >> certainly those are the claims and i think there will be a u.n. investigation into this but that clearly has been a red line president obama has drawn and needs to draw and it will be very critical that if there are chemical weapons being used by the assad regime president obama responds accordingly. that is another red line he is drawing. that is red line irisraelies will be watching and iranians. is this president serious about committing to red lines and honoring the red lines. uma: quickly with obama speaking to young people in israel, that was very interesting strategy on his part because he knows he often does well in those kind of settings, at that type of theater backdrop. >> i think that's right. president obama shown in the u.s. context he is he is brilliant at grassroots activism and getting support of the grassroots. he tried
assassinated in 1995. president obama also visited the holocaust memorial joining president perez and prime minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry. he laid a wreath in the hall of remembrance then offered these thoughts. >> this accounting of horror is in the end a source of hope. for here we learn that we are never powerless. in our lives we always have choices. to seccumb to our worst instincts or to summon the better angels of our nature. >> the president made a quick trip to bethlehem to visit the church of the nativity with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and is now preparing to head to ahman, jordan. nbc's chuck todd traveled ahead of the president and joins me live now from there in ahman. chuck, i can only imagine the university of miami cheerleaders brought a smile to your face in amman, jordan. >> good morning. that was a great surprise. we're inside by the way. if you look behind me you can see it's a little dusty out there. there's been heavy winds almost like a sandstorm out here. it's actually something that prevented the president from choppering to b
on as >> on day two of his middle east tour, president obama took on the deadlock in the israeli-palestinian peace process. he spent time with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and palestinian president mahmoud abbas. president obama is calling for direct talks between the two parties and sharing a vision for a peaceful future. two rockets launched from gaza hit southern israel thursday. the same day as president obama's visit to the west bank to talk about the stalled israeli-palestinian peace process. >> we cannot give up on the search for peace, no matter how hard it is. >> reporter: following earlier meetings with israeli leaders, he met with the president of the palestinian authority, mahmoud abbas. to discuss key sticking points in the peace process..including jewish settlements in the west bank. president obama stressed the need to achieve sovereignty for palestinians and security for israel. >> i hereby assert again that we are ready to implement all our commitments and obligations in order to provide for the requirements of launching the peace process and achieving the two-state s
relationship between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu has certainly thawed if there were any problems? >> yes i have gotten that impression. >> bill: they are spending a lot of time together and very supportive of each other. what are the chances for resumption of peace talks between both sides? >> well, i'm an optimist. i think that's something that we need to move forward on and i do believe with the president now, i think having -- what i believe is the confidence of the israelis that he is going to be in a much better position to try to encourage them to get back to the table, and with the palestinians and try to get there without preconditions and sit and try to get it done. >> bill: and it looks like there's some willingness on both sides, so let's hope that happens. meanwhile yesterday the ryan budget comes up in front of the house, and of course no surprise that republicans were able to round up enough votes to pass it. i was surprised, however, congress woman that it only got what 220 votes -- two more than it needed to pass the
to yourself quietly. today began with president obama visiting the dead sea scrolls with prime minister benjamin netanyahu and visited a tex sch show where israeli engineers showed them a snake-like contraption that shgoes in smal spaces and shows them what's going on in those small spaces. and he visited the and met with palestinian president abbas. that was all by lunchtime and then spoke at a convention center before an audience of more than 2,000 israelis. most of the audience was made up of college students but government officials and civil leaders in the audience. shortly after beginning his remarks, the president as i mentioned was heckled. he responded by saying the heckler made him feel right at home. one advantage of having, you lie, screamed at you during a speech during congress is heckling probably never rattles you again. the crowd give him standing ovation in response to the heckler and cheered with approval at this point in the speech. >> make no mistake, those who adhere to the ideologically of rejecting israel's right to exist, they might as well reject the earth bene
is to translate his rhetoric into political action. let me be blunt, too. president barack obama gave up on brokering a peace settlement between the palestinians and the israelis almost after the first year. prime minister benjamin netanyahu is more interested in on the ground than a two-state solution. we shall wait and see if president barack obama, this great american, would invest serious political capital in brokering a peace settlement between two camps. >> and how interested are the palestinians and abbas in a two-state solution? i was reading this week. he was writing that this term work the-state solution, is a real fallacy. for many reasons, one of which is because palestinian authority does not actually want a two-state solution. abbas has written before that he would never recognize israel's authority. and as you know, i'm sure, two-state solutions have been brokered and offered, 1937, '47, 2000, 2008, all denied. on the part of the palestinian authority. so is obama's quest for a two-state solution naive? >> the palestinians have repeatedly stressed that they believe in a tw
exactly with benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister here, this is what you need to demand as a population. it was meant as a way to counter feelings in israel that perhaps president obama is anti-israeli. analysts say he accomplished that feat of being able to sway public opinion here by this massive charm offensive which was very well choreographed. today a little bit more of the ceremonial types of things. laying a wreath at mount hertzel ceremony where famous leaders are buried. he visited the holocaust memorial and then he has lunch with prime minister netanyahu. this is their third or fourth one on one meeting of this trip as they try to get down to the nitty-gritty issues. obviously the israelis want to talk most about iran, iran, iran and president obama wants to talk a little bit about the palestinians. that is where he's headed next, over to bethlehem to try to talk to them. however, the charm offensive he had over there, the warm and fuzzy feelings he's getting in israel hasn't worked so far with the palestinians. >>brian: was there any backlash of the president talking beyond t
both he and former french president sarkozy, and the reporters once heard trashing of netanyahu. sarkozy, i can't stand him,'s a liar, obama, you are sick of him, but i have to work with him every day. i don't know what he means by every day, i don't remember how many times he refused to meet with his counterpart. the white house turned down the request to meet with obama, and aides were claiming that a scheduling conflict with the scheduling. and the president shared a good old laugh with david letterman during the visit. and when the president first set foot in the oval office, remember, he began apologizing to the world for america, to israel's detriment. >> america, like every other nation has made mistakes and has its flaws. in america, there's a failure to appreciate europe's leading role in the world. instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where americans showed arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive. >> 9/11 was an enormous trauma to our country. the fear and anger that it provoked
at the jefferson hotel with republican senators and now a charm offensive in israel with bb netanyahu. and this is apparently the new happier, more pleasant barack obama, but i think the mask slipped a little today and the underlying real thing, to somehow come back to blaming israel, even when other people are firing rockets at israel. >> greta: and so he walks away from this trip with what? >> i'm not saying turning around bad press. >> greta: bad press in the-- >> from the whole notion of blaming israel. you know, if you land and go see their rocket defense system and gee, why do the israelis have to spend this much on a rocket defense system, oh, it's because even from gaza there are rockets fired regularly from israel. >> greta: they had rockets the morning he was there. >> how can you talk about a peace process? >> mr. speaker, always nice to see you, sir. if you don't do your job, you don't get paid. right? why doesn't that simple rule apply to the white house? one republican senator is trying to make sure it does. he's here to tell us about it. and rush versus beyonce. he's he

prime minister benjamin netanyahu called turkey's prime minister and apologized for that deadly raid, apologized for nine deaths and vowed to pay their family. at one point mr. obama, just before leaving for jordan, got on the phone with both leaders and they spoke. one senior american official said, this is obama diplomacy at work. the leaders agreed to restore normal relations. so that is real, tangible success and it shows the success of the trip. but then there are symbolic successes. today he went to former israeli prim minister's grave. he was assassinated by an extremist. as is customary in a jewish tradition, he placed a stone on the grave but this stone had powerful symbolism. it came from the martin luther king memorial in washington. the president, connecting one civil rights and human rights leader to another, it's the melting of history, disconnection, the connection of the civil rights movement. that's the president brought throughout his trip. >> the story of the exodus was perhaps the central story, the most powerful image about emerging from the grip of bondage to re
